Recently I read the book, Tangerine. The story is about a boy named Paul Fisher and his family moving to Tangerine, Florida. The theme is even though it appears perfect on the outside, the inside is grotesque.

It only takes only one person to change the way you think about yourself. The novel “Tangerine” by Edward Bloor is about a boy(Paul) who can't stand up to his fears. This changes throughout the book. Every choice has a consequence, and all of the characters made Big and small choices. Paul's brother Erik’s choices affected Paul in a positive way, but the consequences of his choices were not.
Gilman also highlights a lack of identity of the narrator through the setting of the novella which reflects the narrator’s societal confinement. The protagonist is surrounded by “hedges and walls and gates that lock”, which create a sense of separation that the narrator feels from others and the outside world. In addition, the room in which she is confined contains a “heavy bedstead, and… barred windows, and then that gate at the head of the stairs, and so on”. These physical and ‘prison-like’ restrictions imposed on the protagonist clearly demonstrate her lack of freedom. Additionally, Gilman’s use of syndetic listing to describe the narrator’s physical entrapment is perhaps reflective of her feelings of suffocation and her inability to escape as the list feels never ending. Essentially, it is the physical and subsequent metaphorical entrapment of the female protagonist by her husband in The Yellow Wallpaper that leads to a loss of her identity.

The pursuit of dreams has played a big role in self-fulfillment and internal development and in many ways, an individual 's reactions to the perceived and real obstacles blocking the path to a dream define the very character of that person. This theme is evident in Zora Neale Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God, which is about the search for identity. A woman of a mixed ethnicity resides in several communities, each playing an important role and serve as crucial influences on her life. During the story, she endures two failed relationships and one good relationship, dealing with disappointment, death, the wrath of nature and life’s unpredictability.
As it is with most good stories, the presence of strong symbolism and detailed settings is a very important aspect of the story that helps to draw the reader into the story. However, in stories such as “The Yellow Wallpaper,” the narrator’s point of view is what truly helps define the setting and symbolism. Without the narrator’s distinct point of view on how she
Throughout the reading, the reader is exposed to the narrator’s in-depth loss of touch with reality as she sinks further and further into her own reality. As she becomes more isolated, her descriptions of the house become more abstract as she begins to focus on the wallpaper and starts to see herself as being hidden behind it. In the beginning of the story, she describes
Paradise Of The Blind, written by Duong Thu Huong tells the story of a young Vietnamese girl in the 1980s. As Hang travels to Moscow by train she recounts her life experiences and contemplates on her past during the corrupt communist reign. The novel describes events through Hang’s perspective and illustrates her childhood memories using various motifs. Particularly, food is used as the most recurring and notable motif.

In Paradise of The Blind, vietnamese cuisine is also a strong
In a time where a trauma, calamity, or another kind of unfortunate event is evident or even expected, it is often said that waiting is the hardest part. In a time where death is constantly just around the corner, the most difficult challenge one must brave is to know it will eventually happen, but never know precisely when. In Elie Wiesel’s Night, he employs the motif of selection day in order to depict the constant primitivism and viciousness of the Holocaust as a whole, conveying a tone of desperation as Elie struggles to conserve the unbreakable bond he and his father share, with the fear of getting separated looming just behind.
Story of a young girl, Connie , who allegedly stalked by a creepy guy Arnold Friend. With further investigation and through studying of psychological disorder this short story has a different view than expected. Oates does blur the view between fantasy and reality through her description of Arnold yet it appears that that the fight that Connie is internal. As the way the story is told it feels if Connie is delusional and the encounter she has with the young man is all made up in her head. The fact that Arnold knows so much information and somewhat controls her actions makes it appear that she is just being dealing with her subconscious. Connie appears to be dealing with feels related to sexuality and control where delusion is a platform for her evaluate her own though processes. Joyce Carol Oates uses unique literary technique that make you question if Connie really in a threating situation. Connie uses an image of a guy that she has seen in passing to give a face to her delusions. Interpretation of this play has been related to something more eerie yet as a reader I believe he story portrays more of subconscious self-evaluate of the main character

The most favorite sentence for me is “Morning sun fills the house, creamy as lemon chiffon, lighting the insides of cupboards and empty closets and clean, bare floor.” From the details in the sentences, I can image the story as the pictures in front of my eyes. Now, let me talk about the story, and share my personal opinions.
